I was able to snag the Chicago Electric 12" slider for $123.99 using coupon 75488992. They are shipping everything even bulk for $6.99. All in after tax i will get the saw for $141.xx shipped to my door. This makes me happy as HF isnt close or in the most comfortable part of town.

I have this saw and it's stupid cheap compared to the cost of other 12" sliding compound miter saws. DeWalt comes in at nearly $600 for one. I think the build quality is about the same. The blade that comes with it is a piece of garbage, but even with replacing the blade with a good Diablo or DeWalt blade the cost is still well beneath the other manufacturers. I think it cuts pretty nicely too, but I haven't had a chance to really test it out.

That being said, the laser on this saw is useless after one cut because of where it's positioned and it requires a mod to get the laser to stay on when plugged in (it only comes on when the blade is on..bad design HF!)

Ok, I was stretching a little. Of course it's not DeWalt, but it's also not $600 either.

I would have never thought the quality was great, until I read an article in a magazine. It compared it to other brands. I don't think the average diy'er would notice a big difference. I think the cost outweighs the benefit you would get from paying 470 more. I have thought about purchasing one after reading the article.

Here's a lumberjocks review where the guy owned it and updated over the course of a year and a half. Make sure you scroll down as he initially says it's not a long-term review, but he updates it later on.

For what it's worth, if I didn't already own my Hitachi 12" saw, I'd be picking this saw up for woodworking stuff. For what you pay, the performance of this thing is apparently spectacular.

I've got this saw and really like it. As said before, the default saw blade is a piece, but I got a replacement Stanley for $12 (80 TPI) and it's working fine. My only complaint is that the miter system is off by a degree and takes a little bit of getting used to, but it can still make accurate cuts if you make a test cut and measure with a protractor.

I believe it was The Family Handyman magazine. It was within the last 3 issues.

A lot of the HF tools are obviously junk but I've heard really good reviews on this saw. This is a great price for a decent sliding miter saw. I don't think it would be a good choice if you're using it 8 hours every day but for the homeowner that will pull it out once or twice a month it's plenty.

That honestly sounds pretty bad. The whole point of having a miter saw is to make precision cuts at multiple angles. I am a trim carpenter so my opinion may be biased (opposed to a homeowner and diyer), but I would much rather invest in a quality tool that will produce a superior end result without producing an ache in my head.

Not trying to thread crap, just trying to give my opinion so to help people out.

I returned an otherwise great craftsman miter saw because it didnt cut square.
